Hollywood studios strike deal to keep Kodak movie film in production

I beg to differ, my dear DigiMatt.
Actually the film used to shoot movies was 35mm, yes, but not the same kind as the one used on 35mm cameras. The 35mm motion pictures film has a black coating on the back of it, impeding regular 35mm labs to develop it. It would leave a grease black sediment in the tanks. This film is also not balanced for daylight, it is tungsten balanced. Don’t ask me why. It comes in 100 foot rolls. back in the day, there was only a lab, in Hollywood, Florida, who bought large amounts of left overs from that film from the movie industry and offered prints, negs & slides from their customer’s rolls. They gave customers new rolls of their film in return. I don’t know if they still exist.
